Chris Brown to Sue Rape Accuser for Defamation
Chris Brown has vowed to sue his rape accuser for defamation, after he was arrested in Paris over the claims.
The singer claims he was set up by the 24-year-old model, who claimed Chris took her to his hotel in Paris and violently raped her. Chris called BS, saying he was never alone with the women.
Chris insists he was playing music off his iPhone in the living room of the suite with 20 people around him the entire time.
Chris’ Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says,
“Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.”
Brown was released from police custody Tuesday, but prosecutors say the investigation is still ongoing. A source in the judicial system of Paris told TMZ the fact Brown was released with no conditions and free to leave the country is a sign authorities have problems with the case.
The 24-year-old model claimed she was raped by three men including rapper Chris Brown during a drug-fuelled party that turned ‘violent and brutal’ at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris. She said:
This friend asked me what I was doing the next day, and if I would like to meet Chris Brown,’ said the woman, who finally met the rapper on January 15.
I said yes and the next day, on Tuesday, I had an appointment at 11.30pm at the Mandarin Oriental hotel to meet the rapper. At the reception of the hotel, I found myself with friends of his and other girls. We went up to his suite to pick him up and we all went to a nightclub called ‘The Quay’.
Everything was going well. Around 4am, they decided to go back to the hotel. I wanted to go home, but someone in Chris Brown’s entourage took me by the arm and said: ‘Come on, we’ll have a good evening.’
Leaving the nightclub, there were two Mercedes vans that were full up. So I said, ‘There’s no place, I’m going home.’ Then I was told, ‘No, come on!’. And I was put in Chris Brown’s car with another girl.
The woman adds:
Before entering the suite, the bodyguard took all our cell phones. It didn’t seem surprising given the artist’s notoriety and I didn’t worry. Once in the suite, we were offered drinks. There was cocaine and cannabis.
There were about fifteen girls, friends of Chris Brown. The music was loud, people were coming in and out … It was a bit chaotic.
At one point, I went to the bathroom. Chris Brown followed me and took me by the right arm. He made me enter a sort of dressing room. He closed the door.
It lasted 25 to 30 minutes. It’s still too difficult for me to explain in detail what he did, but it was brutal and violent.
He was threatening and aggressive. I was very afraid. Once it was over, he opened the door. I told him that I wanted to pick up my cell phone and go home.
Chris Brown went to see one of his friends. I thought this person was going to accompany me to the bodyguard for my cell phone, but that’s not what he did.
He took me to his room, he locked the door and he abused me too. It was the same with the bodyguard All I wanted to do was go home. I was too scared. There were three muscular men, aggressive and menacing. I couldn’t do anything. I’m traumatized, I can’t overcome what happened to me and resume my habits. It’s horrible, I’m lost.
